IMHO the 125mm flap disc on the battery angle grinder is just the perfect tool for giving mower blades a touch-up

I use a 1960's vintage Black & Decker 8" snag grinder that I paid 5 bucks for at a flea market. I got 2 at that price, the thher is from the 50's but needs brushes. Yeah, I'm a cheapskate.

Life moves on boys and girls.

I put the router speed control on the handheld belt sander and when I turned it up side down it fit right into the gaps on a portable work bench I have from a previous craigslist score.  Yeah I sold the far too gone to work gas stove that was on it but I digress. 

It works pretty darn good and that's with a 120 grit belt.  I saw a porcelain 120 grit belt at Lowes that I'll pick up in the next week or two.  The chief's knife is actually kind of sharp but I'm sticking with 36 grit for the machetes, shovels and concrete form scraper (tall banana plant harvester).  I might even break down and get something in the 200 range like the ones the dedicated sharpeners use.  It's only money and Amazon Prime has my credit card number.

Small victories are better if you stop and appreciate the moment.

Girls?
There are women who frequent this Forum?
Really?

And here I was thinking it was just an online geriatric Sausage fest like all the engine shows I have been to.   :embarassed:

OK, there is the occasional long suffering Mrs  There looking as bored as I am waiting for my Mrs in a frock shop, but pretty sure the female folk don't have to suffer with their fellas looking here.
